We begin the season with two forceful pieces by the Italian Stefano Massini: one, CreCenUnSolDéu [I believe in one God alone] looks at everyday life in the Gaza Strip. The other, Dona no reeducable [Woman not educable] is about the journalist Anna Politkovskaya, who was murdered in 2006 for her opposition to Russia's involvement in the conflict in Chechnya. The two plays will alternate in September (check the schedules!).
This is a brand new text that reached me just a few weeks ago. I went to see Rosa on the same day and I read it to her. I started to translate it the next day. In just a few days, a gap in my very busy schedule miraculously appeared, and CrecEnUnSolDéu became part of our programme for the coming year. Everything happened as if it were something obvious. I don't remember the exact moment when I decided to do it, nor having formally suggested it to Rosa Maria Sardà, or... It was an eagerly anticipated text. And fortunately for us, Stefano Massini has written it. As so often happens, the theatre asks questions out loud about an issue that affects us, which moves us every day and to which we generally have no answer. Or does anyone really believe that they have the answers to the brutal questions that explode every day in that ancient piece of land called the Gaza Strip? Does anyone know what else to say? Or simply what to say?
